This chandalier is really beautiful. I had read other reviews about the second tier not sitting straight and I also had this issue - with a little bend of the metal I was able to make it straight. I used 40w bulbs and its enough. There is so much light that it gives that I think anything over 40w would be overkill. Very happy with this purchase - get compliments all the time.
Initially I purchased this for my hallway. After seeing how much light it gives off and what a statement it makes I decided to use it in my dining room which is fairly large and has a 9 foot ceiling. It swaths the entire room in a beautiful light patteren from the crystals (they are glass) and adds an unbelievable ambiance. My husband is really impressed too. A lot of bang for your buck. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is hanging very slightly crooked. Barely noticeable but I will look on line for a fix.
The quality of this product is excellent! I have purchased many items in the past from Overstock and was very dissatisfied! This product makes up for the 'lack of' on my previous orders! Makes an awesome design on the walls and ceiling. Real crystal. Gives off plentiful light. No rainbows, :(. Beautiful! I am very pleased!
This light is extremely sparkly and interesting, and I received tons of compliments on it at a dinner party. It came already assembled, but when we hung it it hung crooked like the bottom tier wasn't totally level. It was also missing the piece that keeps the cap on the ceiling, but we fixed it with a black zip tie and you can't really tell. Oh and the light is definitely BLACK not bronze. I was pretty surprised when I pulled it out of the box and it was black metal, not even dark bronze but absolutely black. But it worked in my space and looks totally great so I am still happy over all.
I love this chandelier, it looks great over my kitchen island. I get so many compliments when people come over. My sister even ordered one for over her kitchen table. It's a great buy. The crystals sparkle and the chandelier does give out a lot of light.
The light is already up and returns will be too difficult so I guess we are committed. Chose the light for the foyer. The tiers are not level so from certain angles it looks like it is leaning. We contacted technical service as directed in the instructions but they were no help. It looks like the actual tiers/ shades are not level so no matter what you do they will be off. It is disappointing since it really is a nice fixture.
Light is lovely -- casts subtle shadows on wall at night, looks interesting during the day, and offers just the right amount of soft glow (am using low wattage bulbs) for the living room. There were no installation instructions -- and called Overstock who still could not provide any. That was rather a pain. It took the electrician a bit to figure out how to get the lower level to hang down. Once he did, it hangs perfectly straight. Could not be more pleased.
I ordered this piece for my dining room. I was looking for something to add an elegant touch to the room. This chandelier does just that. It's beautiful. I was a little concerned that some buyers mentioned that they had to put all the crystals on themselves, but the one I received came completely assembled. I love the pattern the light reflects on the wall when lit. It took my husband all of 20 minutes to replace our old light with this new one. Bottom line, I'm very pleased with this purchase.
I saw this light and for the price decided to give it a try. Shipped to my house so fast, took it out of the box and hubby had it hung within an hour. Some folks said they had to put the crystals on the lamp, but mine came fully assembled. Very easy to install and it looks amazing in my entry.
We just added on to our house and our friends have all been walking through and everyone stops and talks about this chandelier. It is by far the favorite part of our addition for everyone. The best part is how beautiful the crystals sparkle when the light is on.
